One of the few ground covers that grow equally well in sun or semi-shade. Plants make a compact, upright bush of eight to twelve inches in height. The pale violet flowers have deep purple blotches on the lower petals with yellow inside. The cool colors are a welcome relief during the heat of summer. This everblooming ground cover looks like a bright blanket. Attracts bufferflies and makes a blooming atmosphere. Easy to grow, drought tolerant.

Trachelospermum asiaticum

Asian Jasmine, Yellow star jasmine
Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Southeast Asia
Vine or creeperFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Moderately frost hardy vine that grows in full sun to full shade, asian jasmine has oval leaves 1-2 inches long that are glossy and dark green. It has a compact habit and will grow prostrate on the ground or cling to a wall. It is the answer for anyone wanting that elusive combination: an evergreen climber with heavily scented flowers. The foliage is neat and unobtrusive, and makes a good background for the clusters of creamy white flowers that appear in mid-summer. It is particularly good for growing over an arch or arbour where the delicious perfume can be best appreciated.

Tricyrtis macrantha, Tricyrtis macranthopsis

Yellow Chinese Toad Lily
Family: Liliaceae   (Formerly:Uvulariaceae / Liliaceae)
Subfamily: Calochortoideae
Origin: Japan
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Large clear yellow bell shaped flowers bloom along the stem in late summer and early Fall. This is one of the best toad lilies but it is slower to spread making an impressive clump in 2-3 years. Preferring a sheltered semi-shaded site with adequate moisture they make ideal subjects for the woodland garden. Propagation: By dividing rhizomes, tubers, corms or bulbs (including offsets); from seed.
